comfigure uw imap server


after doing the make on the uw imap server, I am given these instructions to do to make it work:

3) Install the POP2 daemon (ipopd/ipop2d), the POP3 daemon (ipopd/ipop3d), and
the IMAP daemon (imapd/imapd) on a system directory of your choosing.

4) Update /etc/services to register the pop2 service on TCP port 109, the
pop3 service on TCP port 110, and the imap service on TCP port 143. Also
update Yellow Pages/NIS/NetInfo/etc. if appropriate on your system.

5) Update /etc/inetd.conf to invoke the POP2, POP3, and IMAP daemons on their
associated services.

6) That's all!

----------------------

What do I do to make these things happen. By this I mean, what directories do i put them in and what do I do to update inetd.conf (or xinetd on my mandrake 8.1 system) to make this get up and going?

is there a reason you're not using RPMs?

yes. When I try to install the rpm of it, I get the need dependency error for lib.so.6(glibc 2.3) I have tried and tried to install this glibc2.3 rpm on my linux boxes forever and I have never been able to.

Anyone know any other suggestions? I really need this in a hurry...

i've never used uw before but i recommend u try out courier-imap - easier to setup and u won't have problems getting the dependencies.

get it here:

http://umn.dl.sourceforge.net/source...-1.7.3.tar.bz2

u can build the binary/source rpms using this command:

rpmbuild -ta courier-imap-1.7.3.tar.bz2

(do the rpmbuild as non-root user.)

hth.

Hi heathpitts,

1) Look in /usr/sbin. You should already have imapd, pop2d and pop3d there.

2) In /etc/services you should already have the protocol/ports set up as well.

3) In /etc/xinetd.d just edit the imap, pop and/or pop2/3 to "disable=no" and restart xinetd.

Let me know what happens.

Well I checked all that but I still cannot connect to the server at port 143 I still get connection refused. This happens even if I start it manually from the CLI. Anything else I should check to make sure this port is opened up?

I got it working by editing /etc/services and hosts.allow and adding it to xinetd.d
